Most doggers I know of are particularly careful about safer sex. I wonder if they filtered through their research subjects until they found the ones with the answers they were hoping for, or whether my experiences have been atypical.

The WTO thing is, as you say, disturbingly unsurprising.

I'm driven to assume that the disturbing perverts and deviants that you and I hang out with are generally far more careful and intelligent about such things that the right-thinking manly studs that society prefers.

As wechsler says, they could be an atypical sample - but what they say about the safer sex practices of other doggers would probably be pretty representative.

Possibly more representative of the ones who are willing to play with them, rather than speaking for all.
